Hello,
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

Hi, thanks, ***** ***** your query, will be replying in few seconds please. DrVasavada

The total dose is better taken together once in morning to avoid stomach irritation from multiple dosing. There are side effects but clinician weighs benefit and harm while prescribing.
